Cornmeal Buttermilk Waffles

I have come across a secret ingredient in waffles that provides a WONDERFUL texture… What is it you ask? Well, if you haven’t guessed by the title, I’ll tell you! It’s CORNMEAL! My parent’s neighbors shared this family recipe of theirs and my mother has deemed it her new favorite waffle recipe. The buttermilk makes these waffles delicious and fluffy while the cornmeal makes makes each bite crisp and incredible. They really are so good! Give them a try for yourself- Once you have tried them, they just may become your new go-to recipe too!

    You are the second blog in 30 mins I've read who has made cornmeal waffles today (of all things!) Clearly it's a sign :)

    I love cornmeal in pancakes, but never thought to try it in waffles. I must try these asap!

    Yikes! Mine are sticking in my Calphalon waffle maker. Add more oil? I doubled the recipe, if that makes a difference.

    I love cornmeal pancakes, so I'm sure these are even better! I want to eat one just dripping in honey.

    Mmmm, nothing is better than nice warm waffles in the morning drenched with syrup! And the cornmeal, genius! I have had cornmeal pancakes before and they were amazing, so I'm sure these are just as awesome! Pinned. :)
